The conference rooms are located on the ground and top floor of the Jakobi 2 building. All the rooms are equipped with projector, computer (MS Powerpoint and Adobe Reader installed, internet connection) and loudspeakers for the presentations. Please bring your presentations on a USB stick or upload them on the internet to save time and to avoid possible connection mismatches between your laptops and the projectors. If you wish to use handouts, print them out in advance or use one of the many copy-shops located near the university. The 30-minute time slots for the presentations are intended to reserve 20 minutes for talks and 10 minutes for discussion. Please plan your presentations accordingly.
